The Oliver Twins had hinted that a "new" Dizzy game would be released on October 24th. Actually, they released an unreleased game made 22 years ago! The game is free to download in as an nes rom dump. Alternatively you can play it through a web browser.

I have tested the rom with Fceux and it runs great on the GCW0.

Unfortunately this means that I'm probably not going to get much dev work done over the next few days...

Will have a bash of this tonight, thanks for sharing. The history of the Oliver brothers on that page is very interesting and worth a read too, the 8bit home computer scene was fascinating.

Incidentally I saw this the other day, it's a free eBook about the development of R-Type on the Speccy if anybody is interested:
